My name is Quynh Thoa Truong, but my English-speaking friends shorten it to “QT” to prevent countless names that are highly creative but not even close. I don’t mind, “QT” does have a good ring to it!
Along with my parents, siblings, aunt and grandmother, we’ve made our home in Tulsa, Oklahoma after our great escape from communism in 1975 after Vietnam was taken over by the communist regime. I have been living with my children and husband in the Dallas area for the past 31 years.
When my children were little, the biggest dilemma was to get them to eat their greens. After so many tries, I remembered a dressing I made whenever I help my mom with dinner. To my surprise, after one serving they asked for more! Now a day, my children do not order salads when they eat out because it’s not mom’s dressing. That’s when my original Soy Vinaigrette came to life!
I started QT Cook Shop first and foremost, to honor my mother, who left us too soon on December 2nd, 2020. I spent alot of my time cooking dinner together with mom in our kitchen. I know that she would be ecstaticly happy to share our family recipe with everyone. Secondly, I wanted to share a part of the Asian culture, especially my Vietnamese heritage by bringing the taste of salad from my kitchen to everyone's, and help create healthy eating habits without giving up tastes. The flavors are Soy Vinaigrette, Soy Ginger Vinaigrette, Soy Sesame Vinaigrette. They are vegan and contains no MSG! I also have a Soy-Free Soy Vinaigrette for those who cannot take soy-based products but love the taste of soy sauce.
QT Cook Shop dressings make eating salad more tasty, savory, and enjoyable. It is made with one of the key ingredient, LOVE. You can use them on your salad as a dressings, as a marinade or glaze for steak, chicken, fish, and as a stir fry sauce. Cooking is made easy with QT Cook Shop's dressings and marinades. All the ingredients you need are in one bottle.
I am in the process coming up with new dressings and marinades. I will share them in my blog along with ideas and recipes. All of I hope that you will like the dressings as much as my children do. Thank you for your support!
QT Cook Shop dressings and marinades are made and bottled in Richardson, TX.
